It’s lovely, thank you to everyone who made it possible.
Perfection! This was just a simple sweet add on gift and I loved the thought behind it!
Lovely work, will be much enjoyed by my young niece for her birthday.I personally would have preferred a more squashy cushion pad. It is very solid!
But thanks to all concerned, the work is much appreciated and admired.
My mum is an English teacher so this was a perfect gift! Got it for her for Mother’s Day and she absolutely loved it.
Loved the cushion it looks better in reality than on screen beautiful British craftsmanship, who ever made it should be very proud.
This is my favourite of my 3 William de Morgan designs from Fine Cell work. I’m on the way to completing this with the hares? to come next. As before, these tapestries give me enormous pleasure and the quality is excellent.
Never stop making tapestry kits!!
I have worked on this lovely design for a few years and have just finished. It’s inevitably a little misshapen as I don’t use a ring but I’ve loved doing it and am half way through the Dodo.
I did run out of the white wool but Fine Cell were able to source me some more so I could finish it. It’s well made, the wool is good quality and I have gained enormous pleasure from stitching calmly away when on holiday (in the past!) and visiting some kind friends over time. I gain real pleasure also from knowing that I’m helping this fine organisation!
This beautiful quirky cushion arrived promptly and will be a delight to come for a new grandchild, arriving in May.
Thank you to the crafter who made this fine work.
Very pretty - I can’t wait to send these cards to my friends.
well made with fragrant lavender . Stitching and design simple but so pretty. I LOVE the fact that this bag has been made by hand and is rebuiding someone
Beautifully crafted card and hand written message that my mum really appreciated for Mother's Day up in Yorkshire - thank you!
The cushions are wonderful. I bought one each for our married children in London. I plan to present them when we are finally able to get together. I know they will be enjoyed and appreciated.
As with all Finecellwork cushions, this is beautifully sewn. The joy of this cushion is the wit of the AA Gill design, makes me smile whenever I look at it and I have wanted one for ages.
A lioness with attitude. She's an inspiration and an admonishment all in one.
The cushion was really beautiful and extremely well made. I makes me even more keen to buy the Battersea power station cushions when they hopefully come back in stock.
